Make has submitted a planning application for this 152,400m2 office scheme on the banks of the River Clyde at Broomielaw, Glasgow.
Backed by developer Gladedale Capital, the three-block development will sit within the city council's Broomielaw masterplan and will form a key part of the growing Glasgow International Financial Services District.
Ken Shuttleworth's practice landed the job after seeing off the likes of Cooper Cromar, Elder and Cannon, Foster and Partners and Rafael Viñoly in a limited competition organised by the developer.
The design of the scheme aims to increase the 'visual and physical permeability' in the area, characterised by long north-south blocks.
As well as creating a new public square, the project will boast ground-floor shops and cafés and will also open up the river frontage.
The 'layered' facades on the south and west sides of the office blocks will be built from a 'white gold' anodised mesh set within glass - contrasting with more-solid fronts on the north and east sides.by Richard Waite
